Travel health is based on a person by person basis they are individualized and influenced by many factors. Some of these being:
- Past Medical/Surgical History
- Past Vaccination History
- Length of time away
- Types of accommodation
- Activities that will be undertaken while away
Travel Insurance is highly recommended for all travellers to cover theft, loss and medical problems. Medical and Hospital costs in many countries may be very expensive and depending on your isolation from ‘good’ medical care may require expensive travel even a flight home.
Shop around for cover and know exactly what it covers and does not cover. Some policies may exclude some activities you had planned whilst you are away. Your travel agent may be able to guide you.
